Local Bank Recognizes 50th Anniversary of Kent East Liverpool
Kent State University at East Liverpool was recognized for its 50th anniversary during a Business After Hours event hosted by Home Savings & Loan at its downtown location.
During the event, East Liverpool resident Kelly Bell received a check for $200 from Home Savings & Loan for winning the Kent State Golden category. She submitted the photo, entitled “Point of Departure,” to the Kent State photography show held last month to observe the campus’s golden anniversary.
Home Savings & Loan sponsored the Kent State Golden category, created to select the photograph that best exemplifies Kent State in East Liverpool. The winning photo, chosen by the Kent State East Liverpool Art Acquisition Committee, was purchased from Bell and will be displayed as part of the campus’s art collection.
The other winning photos from the recent show also were displayed in the bank’s lobby.
